I believe it's this one, by the cavemen. Some of the cut are:

Rock and Roll

Bang a Stick on a Log

Baby, You can Roll My Wheel

Your Cave or Mine

I Miss You (Since You Learned to Walk Erect)

Jr, you´re really the best in your style!!! :laughing: :laughing: :laughing: :laughing:

By the way, forgive my having forgotten you in the Awards, I realised after having read the post already posted...You were among my Best poster... (yes, my best poster, that one of the Rolling Stones live in Hyde Park I had on my wall 30 years ago!!! :laughing: :laughing:)

Come on, cut it out.

I'm having to roll my pant legs up

just to get thru this stuff :P

Facts are facts. You're the man.

BB, stop being modest. While the rest of us are discussing anal corks and intercourse with watermelons, you always stay true to the main purpose of the board...music. I respect you.

:bow:

...and I think your beard is very sexy! :angel:

Thanks Peaches and Thanks Edna,

My avatar is a picture of ZZ Top member Dusty Hill, not me. It's the closest looking photo to me I could come up with. I've had this ZZ top beard since 1977. Maybe someday soon I'll get my brother to take a picture with his digital camera so I can post a new avatar.

thanks muchly for your help... im beginning to conclude that the first covers were thanks to Steinweiss? seem reasonable? im admiring the work of roger dean and storm thorgerson at the moment, slightly more recent but masters in their fields nonetheless! i think so anyway. just been to see an exhibition of the latter and his work for pink floyd (and muse!) is truly surreal!

well thanks for your help again!

Charlotte,

My first album cover book was:

the Album Cover Album

isbn # 0891040854

Edited by Storm Thorgerson (Hipgnosis)

and Roger Dean

publisher - Dragon's World

(released 1977)

160 pages

This is volume 1.

I think there are at least 5 volumes by now.

It's mostly 1950's, '60s and '70s album covers.

It's done very well, very informative :)

I know nothing about the first, but these are by far the worst...

Here's a little teaser to whet your appetites:

And here I thought the whole point of an album cover was to attract your attention, make you want to buy the album and to leave a lasting impression in your mind for all the RIGHT reasons...!
